- Evaluation of Personality Perception in Men Before and After Facial Cosmetic Surgery. [Journal Article]
- JFJAMA Facial Plast Surg 2019 Jul 11
- CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study suggest that men undergoing facial cosmetic surgery may experience changes in perceived attractiveness, masculinity, and a variety of personality traits. These findings complement those from a previous study on female patients, which together broaden the understanding of the association of cosmetic surgery with societal perceptions of persona.

Pachysentis comprises 10 species, which have been reported parasitizing mammals in Africa and the American continent. However, species of Pachysentis have not been described in brow-nosed coatis. Pachysentis lauroi n. sp. (Oligacanthorhynchidae: Acanthocephala) is described from the brown-nosed coati Nasua nasua (Linnaeus, 1766) Storr, 1780 (Procyonidae: Carnivora) in the Brazilian Pantanal wetlands of the Mato Grosso do Sul State, Brazil.
- Brow Ptosis: Is Transblepharoplasty Internal Browpexy Suitable for Everyone? [Journal Article]
- JCJ Craniofac Surg 2019 Jun 28
- CONCLUSIONS: Transblepharoplasty internal browpexy is an important tool that can be used in most patients with lateral and central brow ptosis, asymmetric brow ptosis and irregular contour of the brow. Additionally, browpexy adds to the success and longevity of upper blepharoplasty, while preventing early recurrence of lateral upper eyelid hooding. Patients with significant ptosis, heavy brows, medial greater than lateral ptosis, and post-facial palsy may not be good candidates for this procedure.
- Cranial Erosion Associated With Non-Midline Dermoid Cysts in the Pediatric Population. [Journal Article]
- JCJ Craniofac Surg 2019 Jun 28
- CONCLUSIONS: A management algorithm for non-midline dermoid cysts is presented. CT or MRI is recommended for lesions that are immobile, in atypical locations, or have associated periorbital sequelae or change with Valsalva. The authors feel there is no role for ultrasound and don't recommend routine imaging in patients with non-midline dermoid cysts without features suggestive of bony erosion.
- Psychological Changes and Employment Outcomes After Kyphosis Correction in Patients With Ankylosing Spondylitis. [Journal Article]
- SSpine (Phila Pa 1976) 2019 Jul 15; 44(14):996-1002
- CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated the psychological changes and subsequent improvement in employment outcomes after corrective osteotomy in patients with AS. The degree of sagittal alignment correction was correlated with improvements in psychological status and employment outcomes.
- Botulinum Toxin to Treat Horizontal Forehead Lines: A Refined Injection Pattern Accommodating the Lower Frontalis. [Journal Article]
- ASAesthet Surg J 2019 Jun 17
- CONCLUSIONS: The refined injection pattern is an effective and safe technique to treat horizontal forehead lines. The Microbotox technique enables treatment of the lower frontalis without changes in brow position.

A 20-year-old male presented with a gradually growing mass in the left lateral brow region for 2 years. On imaging, the mass appeared to arise from the lacrimal gland, was cystic, without any bony abnormality. With a diagnosis of dermoid cyst, an excision biopsy was performed. The histopathology revealed an epithelium-lined cyst, with the wall of the cyst comprising dermal adnexa and inflammatory cells. The wall also contained fragments of skeletal muscle, nerve bundles, adipose tissue, exocrine and secretory acini, few blood vessels with occasional hair shafts, with the lacrimal gland in the periphery of the tumor. There were no immature elements, atypia, and malignant cells, thus confirming the diagnosis of a mature cystic teratoma. Primary lacrimal gland teratoma is a rare diagnosis and its presentation in adults is extremely uncommon.
- Altered facial muscle innervation pattern in patients with postparetic facial synkinesis. [Journal Article]
- LLaryngoscope 2019 Jun 25
- CONCLUSIONS: FNM mapping for surgical planning and selective electrostimulation of functional facial regions is possible even in patients with PPFS. FNM may be a tool for patient-specific evaluation and placement of electrodes to stimulate the correct nerve branches in future bionic devices (e.g., for a bionic eye blink).
- Emotional expressions associated with therapeutic inertia in multiple sclerosis care. [Journal Article]
- MSMult Scler Relat Disord 2019 Jun 04; 34:17-28
- CONCLUSIONS: TI was observed in half of participants in at least one case-scenario. Our data suggest that facial metrics (e.g. brow furrow, nose wrinkle) and emotional expressions (e.g. disgust) are associated with physicians' choices and partially mediate the effect of aversion to ambiguity on TI.

A 26-year-old female patient referred to our emergency service with complaint of increase headache and swelling of the left upper eye led. External examination of the head revealed left frontal scalp and left eye led swelling, which was soft and pulsatile. Brain computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging showed left frontal soft tissue and left periorbital swelling with crowded left intraorbital contents. Brain CT angiography showed vascular mass lesion in the left frontal subcutaneous lesion. Six-vessel cerebral angiography showed left frontal scalp arteriovenous malformation (AVM) supplied from the right and left superficial temporal arteries from the external carotid artery and from the left supraorbital artery arising from the ophthalmic artery of the internal carotid artery. By endovascular technique, bilateral superficial temporal arteries were occluded with Onyx 18 (Micro-Therapeutics, Inc., Irvine, CA). The patient was operated after 2 days. Left eye-brow incision was performed and the supraorbital artery was exposed, ligated, and cut. Left fronto-temporal skin incision was performed and the AVM totally excised. No intraoperative nor postoperative complications seen. Follow-up cerebral angiography showed total resection of the AVM.
